Kolkata: Riding on some disciplined bowling, New Zealand restricted India to 239/7 on the opening day of the second cricket Test at the iconic Eden Gardens here on Friday.

Cheteshwar Pujara (87) and Ajinkya Rahane (77) put on a 141-run stand for the fourth wicket to bail the team out of trouble.

At stumps, stumper Wriddhiman Saha (14 not out) and Ravindra Jadeja, who was yet to open his account, were at the crease.

For the visitors, pacer Matt Henry (3/35) and off-spinner Jeetan Patel (2/66) were the wicket-takers along with Trent Boult (1/33) and Neil Wagner (1/37).
